Diddy and his ladies, Dirty Money, get self-reflective on “Coming Home”, the newest tune to drop from the group’s Last Train to Paris. The track, produced by Alex Da Kid (who also produced the hit “Love The Way You Lie” for Eminem) premiered during the World Series, and its chorus is borrowed from J. Cole’s “I’m Coming Home“. Not only that, the tune features verses allegedly penned by none other than Jay-Z. Check it below.

We’re really feeling this song, but we think it has more to do with J. Cole’s original tune (from his debut album, due to drop 2011), since the chorus and the beat of that track is lifted pretty much in its entirety.
However, we have to give some credit to Diddy (or Jay-Z, if he did indeed write them) for dropping some truly introspective lyrics instead of the usual not-so-subtle Ciroq Vodka promotions: “What am I ‘posed to do when the club lights come on / It’s easy to be Puff, but it’s harder to be Sean / What if my twins ask why I ain’t married their mom? Damn, how do I respond?” followed by “What if my son stares with a face like my own / And he says he wants to be like me when he’s grown? Shit, but I ain’t finished growin’.”
We have to agree with Nah Right that the soul-searching verses (paired with a poppy, cheerful production) sound more like Kanye West than Jay. What do you think?
